KIMBERLY ENRIQUEZ DESIGN 202 SUMMER ’09


FAÇADE OF CA’DORO


The idea of a Venetian blind greatly inspired my concept for a new façade of Ca’d’oro. One Facade can serve as many different functions. My concept was to create moments of circulation, observation and rest all with the use of one common facade. The new façade of the Ca’d’oro consists of moveable panels (venetian blinds). These panels are moveable and able to curve and twist to serve as a different function within the building.


STUDY MODEL

The new façade of the Ca’d’oro consists of moveable panels (venetian blinds). These panels are moveable and able to curve and twist to serve as a different function within the building. The first floor will serve as a moment of circulation. The venetian blinds will be manipulation and extend outwards past the façade line to serve as steps into the building and ramps within the building.


STUDY MODEL

The second floor will serve as a moment of observation. The venetian blinds will be mostly closed so that they may serve as a canvas to house artwork within the building. Other venetian blinds can be slightly twisted to serve as tables to house sculptures.


STUDY MODEL The third floor faรงade will serve as a moment of resting. The venetian blind faรงade can serve as chairs, benches, tables for guests to gather and rest. Slightly opened venetian blinds will serve as a filter for light into the building and completely open venetian blinds will give a clear view outwards toward the city of Venice.

CONCEPT

STUDY MODEL 1

THIS MODEL EXPLORES HOW I WANTED TO CONCEAL AND REVEAL MOMENTS IN THE BUILDING AND MOMENTS OF CIRCULATION. VERTICAL PANES WOULD SERVE AS A FACADE FOR THE SHOE STORE. THEY PARTIALLY COVER THE FLOORS, LEAVING SOME PARTS OF THE FLOOR EXPOSED AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
